Ethical Leadership Toolkit

I am pleased to share with you this toolkit of resources that will help Leaders work through any challenges that they may be faced with.

Leading with Integrity brochure

Those working in organizations, particularly large organizations, cannot live with integrity without institutional support. This support includes access to education and support for thinking about ethics. It also includes providing forums where conversations about difference can occur and where genuine listening and understanding can occur.

It can be very helpful for team leaders to create space for the team to think through some important questions about what is important about how the team works together and the actual decisions the team makes.

The resource Leading with Integrity contains a number of questions that individual members of a team and the team as a group should consider to live with integrity.

Who is it for:
All leaders of teams in an organization.

What it does:
The brochure provides an overview of important ideas and questions that teams should grapple with in order to help the team and individuals live with greater integrity.

How to use it:
Review the tool, share it with your team members and then create space to discuss the questions posed. Work together to develop a strategy for how to follow through on the various commitments suggested.
